... through 1st set (thanks for tips, previous reviewer!) and began w/HSF (in Playin' now), but agreed that "the bass player" sounds fantastic. The howling and shrieking sound throughout is kinda weird, but easily forgiven, considering clarity, separation and spunk. Thanks to all involved (especially Tobin) for terrific quality in rendering these files.

... over under around and through the spurious machinations of mixerman Healy's first set experiments with brand new effects toys, then one might consider this concert to be a true voyage into the the land of the curious.

For some reason, the second set is not beset with these P.A. anomalies and things turn into normal -- normal, that is, for the Dead in those days.

1985 wasn't a half bad year for the band and this show is certainly exemplirary of that premise.

The playing is a little rushed and sloppy at times but all in all it's right on the money. Jerry lets it fly as often as not and curries an acceptable favor.

What really makes this show and why it is so resplendent with groove bags is because of Phil's playing and the recording of the bass is just as I like it, anyway -- very present and very articulated. When Phil is on such as he is on in this particular capturing, then you know the band is in synch that night.

Kudos to Kevin Tobin who really knows his stuff around the re-presentation of these sundrious recordings and versions of recordings. You know that when you read of his name ascribed to one of these deals then you know that it's going to be good.
